All originalhome candles are made from palm kernel wax. They are 100% natural, vegan approved, unscented, and have a clean burn. This means that these candles emit less CO2 compared to a paraffin candle. The palm kernel wax used to make these candles comes from an RSPO-certified plantation. The candles are poured by hand in a small factory in Java, Indonesia. Palm kernel wax is the most sustainable wax as it doesn’t contain any chemical, synthetic, or animal-based reagents and the palm is a highly efficient crop.
